THE MOTOR DRAWS ITS POWER FROM A 15.5 K WH BATTERY PACK, WHICH GIVES THE LIVEWIRE A CLAIMED CITY RANGE OF 235KM

LIVEWIRE ONE

EARLIER this year, Harley- Davidson announced the launch of its new electric motorcycles sub-brand called LiveWire with the LiveWire One as its first offering.

The LiveWire One is nothing but a rebranded H-D LiveWire electric bike that went on sale in 2019, but thankfully with a substantially lower price tag.

Despite all its shortcomings, the LiveWire is still probably the coolest and the most compelling electric motorcycle, especially after the price cut. Instead of anything over-the-top, H-D with traditional styling for the LiveWire One, which has been inspired by the sporty motorcycles made by the American manufacturer in the past. It is powered by a 78 kW (105 hp) electric motor with an electronically limited top speed of 177 kmph.

The company claims the electric bike can do the 0-96 kmph sprint in 3.1 seconds. The motor draws its power from a 15.5 kWh battery pack, which gives the LiveWire a claimed city range of 235 kilometres. However, the range plummets to a dismal 129km for highway riding. A DC fast charger can replenish the battery pack from 0-100 pe cent in an hour.

Turkey A Land Of History, Culture And Cuisine

Cizgi was the cheapest car rental I could locate from the Istanbul International Airport and opted for an automatic Dacia Sandero to take on the impressive and well-maintained roads of Turkey. The highways are four lanes each way with an emergency lane. There are no potholes or uneven surfacing. The toll gates are automatic and one does not have to stop for the tag to be read. Apart from the highways, even the minor roads are surfaced and maintained well. Another feature is that the highways are grid-separated and have a maximum speed limit of 120kmph. Off the highways, speed limits varied between 70kmph and 90kmph.
